Hope on a sunny day

The sun came out for Vikki and Pete today, which made a nice change after the cloud and rain of the past week. We headed up to the Idwal Slabs - a fine multipitch play ground - to climb a 4 pitch V Diff called Hope. Both Vikki and Pete climbed fluidly and quickly, they also picked up some belaying and rope skills on the way. Our speedy ascent meant that we had time for some abseiling practice on the way back down. After a quick lunch we climbed the first pitch of Tennis Shoe Direct, VS, to give the team something a little bit more challenging. They passed with flying colours!
